Maybe there's an extension for that. If not, I probably could add it to this one: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/copy-frame-or-page-url/

This copies the tab title as well as the url: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... e-and-url/

If I just want the url, I select it in the location bar and tap ctrl + c.

Thank you very much for the link, I will try it.

Location bar is the same as the address bar?

You can also use a bookmarklet to get the URL or the Title or if you want both then you can modify the code.
Code: Select all
javascript:(function(){if(prompt(document.title,document.location.href)){prompt(document.title,document.title)}})()

A bookmarklet is a special type of bookmark that has JavaScript instead of an URL in its location field.
You can create a new bookmark and paste the JavaScript code in its Location field.
You can create this bookmark on the Bookmarks Toolbar for easy access and click this bookmark the get a JavaScript prompt window that shows the URL, if you click OK then you get the title in the text field.
